, the fiscal cliffs. when we get a solid policies that's predictable the economy grows. and when we have tax reform we get tax rate downs that estimate-- stimulates incentives to hire people t really is basic economics. that why this is tragic. applying basic economie economies-- economics we could do a lot better. >> brown: austan goolsbee, dow want to comment on what the president you work for has done. >> i will just say is we can agree on the basic economics but i think professor taylor has his history a little backward on that. in the 1990s bill clinton raised exactly the high income tax rates that barack obama wants to return the rates to. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, they actually added more than 1 million fewer private sector jobs if george bush's first term than president obama has under his first term so i really do not think that the basic economics or the history says that just going back to deregulation and high rate-- high income rate cuts is the thing that leads to growth. >> brown:
of italy, silvio berlusconi, was convicted of tax fraud today and sentenced to four years in prison. a court in milan ruled the media mogul and others were behind a scheme to buy the rights to broadcast u.s. movies on berlusconi's tv networks, using offshore companies and avoiding taxes. berlusconi immediately denounced the ruling and vowed to fight it. he'll remain a free man while he goes through the appeals process. in u.s. economic news, stocks finished flat on wall street today. the dow jones industrial average gained more than three points to close at 13,107. the nasdaq rose nearly two points to close just under 2,988. for the week, the dow lost nearly 2%; the nasdaq fell more than half a percent. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to judy. >> woodruff: for more than two decades, microsoft has been a dominant force in the worlds of business and technology. but its position has been challenged and, in some ways, surpassed by apple, google and others in recent years. some question its ability to innovate. now, microsoft is facing a pivotal moment and a crucial
on coal. i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. that's not my plan. my promise... >> read my plan. eporter: but we're not seeing this stuff at random. we're being targeted. behind the scenes, teams of digital gurus have been studying us and tracking us to deliver tailored video ads, phone calls and strategic door knocks. this could be the year that digital strategies decide what is shaping up to be a razor-close election. but who is watching us? and how much do they know about us? i'm on the hunt for answers. first stop: washington d.c. just a few blocks from the capital tucked away in a non-december crypt building is one of the nation's leading providers of political intelligence. it's called aristotle. the data they gather and sell, our personal information, is big business. and it's the life blood of the digital campaign. without it, no modern presidential campaign can survive. >> this place has metal doors, security cameras, biometric sensors. i'm going to have to try the doorbell. >> reporter: aristotle is a nonpartisan company in a small, mostly partisan industry. they're fe
provides in order to pay for it. democrats tend to want to tax a little more for that or add to the deficit because of the emergency. >> ifill: chris christie as the governor of new jersey who the president will be traveling with tomorrow looking at hurricane damage, you can only assume that that will be many levels interpretation of that particular meeting. he said he would like to reschedule halloween but it's not possible to reschedule an election, is it? >> it is technically possible to reschedule elections on a state-by-state basis but i don't think we're going to need that. the date on which the election is held actually set by federal law rather than the constitution. congress could change that date. there's actually provision for, if a state doesn't get its vote in on time, basically for the state legislature to make a decision about which electors to send to vote for president. so there are actually ways for that to happen. i just don't think anybody is that the a point right now. >> ifill: if you're in massachusetts or connecticut and your constituents don't have power, they're no
he even opposes a clean energy tax credit for wind. obama, i think, is just misreading the polls entirely. the latest polling shows that -- i think ken is right. when global warming becomes local that the public becomes concerned about it. that's why the polls in the last two years have shown the public is increasingly concerned and this is particularly true of independent voters also. they are very concerned about their local pollution but also the extreme weather that they've been seeing. who could miss $14 billion extreme weather disasters in this country last year and over $7 this year. everyone sees the weather is going crazy and it's affecting them. it's not going to be affecting distant people in a distant land a distant time from now. it's happening here and now. >> suarez: joseph romm, kenneth green, gentlemen, thank you both. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> suarez: we've rounded up all of our reporting on these issues on our "coping with climate change" page on our web site. take a look. >> ifill: and we turn to the final days of the presidential contest. among the key s
